Massage soothes the nervous system directly to help reduce these hormones and release endorphins, making one feel much happier.

Due to a reduction in stress hormones massage may assist the body to naturally boost immunity, also improving lymphatic drainage.

Massage releases trigger points, stretches and elongates muscles and breaks down adhesions: reducing scar tissue post surgery/injury.

With increased blood flow to the tissues, massage may help to alleviate pain by transporting oxygenated blood to the cells to assist in repairing damage to the soft tissues.
